One of the biggest disappointments to me is when it rains on Halloween. I dislike it as much now as I did when I was a kid. Last year it rained (we had had a long streak of no rain on the 31st so it was probably about time).
I get annoyed that certain decorations I planed can't go out. And worried that we'll be left with a mountain of candy because we'll have fewer trick-or-treaters. (For the record that year we had to make an emergency candy run- so the rain didn't seem to keep them away).
But as a kid I was always disappointed because rain usually spelled disaster for my much anticipated costume. It's hard to wear a raincoat or even carry an umbrella without thinking it would ruin the whole "look".
A while back I posted a project on my other blog for painting your own umbrella. It got be thinking that this could be a perfect solution to a rainy Halloween night. Umbrellas can be found cheaply at the dollar store. With a little fabric paint you can turn it into a custom, costume worthy accessory in no time!
